Trevor Ariza will pass on the NBA's restart in Orlando to spend a one-month visitation window with his son, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
Ariza has been involved in a custody case over his 12-year old son and he has chosen to pick his family over resuming the season. It's a big blow to the Blazers' playoff hopes, as the forward positions have been a major issue all season long and didn't stabilize until Ariza's acquisition. Guys like Carmelo Anthony, Gary Trent Jr., Nassir Little and Mario Hezonja will have to step up. This is also a reminder that the NBA's restart plan won't fly with everyone for a wide variety of reasons.
